Rep Connolly re-"Trump Airport": If Repubs want to name something after him, I'd suggest they find a federal prison"

Rep. Connolly issues a scathing response to the House GOP proposal to rename Dulles Airport after Trump: "Donald Trump is facing 91 felony charges. If Republicans want to name something after him, I'd suggest they find a federal prison.

It was antiquated, obsolete, and dangerous. I thought it was perfect. I hated flying in and out of there.

GOPs are in too much of a hurry. Someone needs to tell them that a pol needs to kick the bucket before the idiots who sentimentalize him into a human being start to name shit after him. I suggest overfilled city dumps and of course, golf courses, not that there's a scarcity of those named after him already.

I don't really look at these but am amazed at how many wonderful commentators are up in the 100,00-200,000 range. I think many have lots of back-and-forth conversations which helps also.

Remember those days? TSF has certainly lowered the qualifications for pResident to a new low.

The GOP has stooped so low, they no longer have a platform to run on. They willingly accept any drool from TSF as Gospel.

I don't want to have a beer with the President, regardless of party.

He's my employee: I want him working his ass off to make life better for ALL Americans.

NOT playing golf 12,000 times a year or lining his own pockets by selling national security secrets.

Doturd is VILE, IGNORANT, TREASONOUS SCUM. It is literally IMPOSSIBLE for the GQP to come up with someone worse.

The full story of a person's life should be known before we start slapping their name on things.

The USPS will not put anyone on a commemorative stamp until three years after their death. That strikes me as a good rule.

One big advantage: once TSF is incarcerated there, his cult followers would not be able to “rescue” him.

I was at the opening of Dulles Airport where JFK spoke. I met Allen Dulles, the former CIA director, there. The airport was named for his brother, John Foster Dulles, Eisenhower's Sectreary of State.

Allen attended the ceremony, but only as a guest who was related to the man after whom the airport was named.

I grew up near there, and have been flying in and out of there for over fifty years, so I see the plaques on the wall all the time. It was named after John Foster Dulles, the Secretary of State.
